Diptrace Library

Postby sinner » 15 Dec 2014, 14:56

It's some time now I'm using Diptrace and I'm getting really handy with it.

The thing I was missing was the vacuum valve library (tube in US dollars)

I have been able to find some scraps of libraries online but with no patterns (schematic symbols only) or other way around - patterns with no schematic simbols.

So I've made one!

It's complete library of most of the popular ones. Triodes, small signal pentodes, tri/pent hybrids, popular PA valves as well as some big bottle examples including 7027 (cheers to ampeg sluts) and off course recto valves

It's all PCB mounted patterns, based on Belton VT9-PT and VT8-PT valve bases.

I will update it in time with offboard mounted valves like in SLO or older Marshalls but I need to figure out what to do (where to assig) heaters

I will update this post if/when I come up with something

EDIT:

Added transformer library - Just schematic symbols, no patterns for obvious reasons

ClassicTone - 68 transformers (PT, OT, Chokes)

Still have 34 to go. I'll update the library when I finish.

I have more brands in works - InMadOut, and possibly part of MM. I say possibly as Mercury Magnetics makes the things difficult

I want to say "thanks" for taking the time to develop and post your DipTrace tube (valve) library. I'm trying to make the move from a beginner's PCB application to DipTrace but I've been frustrated by the lack of a tube library that contains both components and patterns. Your library has what I need to get started.

Thanks again.

Added Classictone transformer library

@Johan - can we make this tread sticky? As a mod I cannot do that myself
